Extinction Rebellion: Ilkley Moor on fire in April we need to act now

Also in Yorkshire Marsden Moor another fire


Not just in West Yorkshire but in

Wales: “Gorse fires cause havoc in UK with hills above Blaenau Ffestiniog blanketed in blaze” https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/gorse-fires-cause-havoc-uk-14448221 and

Ireland: “Fears more dry weather will cause repeat of west Donegal gorse fires” https://www.irishtimes.com/news/environment/fears-more-dry-weather-will-cause-repeat-of-west-donegal-gorse-fires-1.3868181

Scotland: “Fire crews dealing with large wildfire in Moray”


All the above areas historically have lots of rain especially in the winter months. The fact that the ground is bone dry and we are only in April is another conformation that our climate is changing and the need for action now.
